In this course we will explore the medieval universe. Far from the stereotype of a ‘dark age’, scholars in monasteries and universities studied both the earth and heavens, drawing on distant cultures and making scientific knowledge a key part of Christian faith. We will examine their instruments and writings, to understand how the medieval cosmos worked, and why it mattered.
